I have an org-mode file that's running around 6,000 lines with a hundred or so top-level headlines. It's started to take around a minute to load or save, and occasionally it sends emacs into the weeds and I have to force-quit it.
Do any of you think this is too big a file to handle practically in org-mode? Do you have experience with bigger files? Do you experience the same kinds of delays? Or should I be looking elsewhere for the causes of the slowness, like all the other emacs packages I have installed? Maybe I'm just asking too much of emacs in general.
This is with homebrew emacs 24.4 on Mac OS X Mavericks.
linum-mode? What other special minor-modes are active (if any)?
#+STARTUP: showeverything. You have the newest Emacs which comes with the newest org-mode. Start Emacs with
emacs -Qand slowly add back packages to narrow down the offending package slowing things down. I'm on "24.4.1" and "8.2.10" emacs and org.
